Tuesday 1 October, 14.30 – 17.00, Colloquium Guardianship before, during and after a criminal event at the NSCR.
Every criminologist knows the famous maxim of routine activity theory: crime is occurring where a motivated offender meets a suitable target in the absence of a suitable guardian. Many researchers have addressed the role of offenders and of targets, while research into the role of guardians has, comparatively, got less attention. It has been suggested recently that the role of guardians is rather different before, during or after a criminal event.
The NVC, the VU Department of Criminology and the NSCR are jointly organising this colloquium, meant to investigate that claim. There will be ample room for discussion. Admittance is free, but the number of places is limited. Please announce your attendance at email@example.com.
